decimation what's interesting with the Normal and the Florida prosecutions is that the Feds were involved [17:56]
decimation even though the criminal violations were state law (although the Normal unlicensed money transmitter rules were also Federal) [17:57]
asciilifeform in other news, i've a 0.5.3 with fully synced blockchain. [17:57]
asciilifeform if anyone still gives a damn [17:58]
decimation asciilifeform: was the only change that number of locks constant? [17:58]
asciilifeform there was another change, but i'm fairly certain that it was unnecessary and will repeat the experiment tomorrow with it snipped. [17:59]
decimation is it still leaking memory? [17:59]
asciilifeform worth noting that a blockchain, once wedged, never unwedges; [17:59]
ben_vulpes kakobrekla claims otherwise, i never confirmed his unwedging. [18:00]
decimation I saw that around ~260k blocks that my version of bitcoind was taking up nearly 1gig in memory (linux is not exactly precise with memory accounting) [18:00]
asciilifeform and that the most catastropic memory leak, which devours arbitrarily large system in hours, is only triggered full-throttle upon wedging; [18:00]
asciilifeform and, finally, that memory also leaks if bitcoind is loading blocks the usual way, rather than from a tame box with fully loaded blockchain ('connect' option) [18:01]
decimation which implies that the leak might be associated with the network code? [18:01]

BingoBoingo Ah, very interesting [18:07]
asciilifeform leak is in the transaction processing code, and is not triggered when loading exclusively from a known-good node with full blockchain. [18:12]
decimation interesting, that is useful [18:13]
decimation I tried running 'perf' to sample calls to 'malloc' and I didn't see any while I was loading from network peers [18:13]
